Walk description:

NB. Please be aware that the route from West Street uses a footpath across a field which could be muddy and unsuitable in the winter, during or after bad weather. The route relies on a gate from the footpath into the cul de sac. You will need to check that this gate is open before setting out on the walk. The walk starts from a car park on the corner of St. James Street and Prigg Lane. Come out of the car park and turn left into into Prigg Lane and walk all the way to the end of Prigg Lane, taking the footpath that cuts the corner left onto Silver Street. Walk up Silver Street until you reach St. James Street and then turn right at the top to walk along to North Street. Cross over North Street and the continue ahead to walk up Palmer Street. Continue up Palmer Street before turning left into Summer Shard. Walk all along Summer Shard until you reach West Street. At West Street turn right to walk along West Street, past three turnings on the left and then take the footpath on the left. The footpath goes through a field and before the junction of footpath turn left through the gate into Lampreys Lane. Walk along Lampreys Lane until you reach West Street again. Turn right into West Street and follow all the way back to the crossroads in front of the church. Turn right here into Hele Lane and walk along Hele Lane, past the ford (there is a pavement that you can walk on so that you don't have to walk through the ford). Continue along Hele Lane, round the bend and up to the top with South Street. At South Street turn left and walk along South Street then at the end cross over Harvey's Road, Roundwell Street and Prigg Lane and you are back at the car park.
